Models International Takes Center Stage on MTV'S "Hired"; New Docu-Series Chronicles Search for Junior Booker Agent

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) -  Models International, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hollywood Studios International (PINKSHEETS: HYWS), will take center stage when it is prominently featured in an episode of MTV's new docu-reality series "Hired," today, Wednesday, May 19th at 6:30 pm. The show, which premiered earlier this week, follows recent college graduates as they compete for jobs in today's difficult economic landscape. A premier boutique modeling agency with offices in New York and Beverly Hills, Models International allowed MTV to document the companies' search for a Junior Modeling Booker/Agent as they interviewed 15 candidates.

While many applied and several were interviewed, only one person was granted the position: Robert Cunard. Following the taping, Cunard has already hit the ground running, booking several shows for LA Fashion Week and quickly establishing himself as an integral part of Models International.

While viewers will get a glimpse into the exciting world of a thriving modeling agency during the episode, they will also witness a surprising discovery: during the interview process between Models International's managing partner William Scott Whitfield and Cunard, it is revealed the two men are unknowingly related. Both with roots in Louisiana, they discover they are blood relatives, as Cunard's grandfather is also Whitfield's uncle. Tune in to MTV today to see the realization unfold and watch Models International at work.
